Description:

When a mermaid has her first kiss, she 'bonds' for life with the person she kisses. For Lily, a mermaid princess living in secret on land, this means she has ended up accidentally bonded to her obnoxious neighbour, instead of to the boy of her dreams. So begins a tidal wave of relationship drama, as Lily discovers that happily-ever-after never goes as smoothly as you plan it to.

Review:

I have had Forgive My Fins for way too long now. I received for review and meant to read it long before now. And I am mad at myself for only now reading it because I adored it. It was cute, quick and such a fun read. And my first Mermaid book and it certainly won't be my last.

Forgive My Fins is about Lily, half human, half Mermaid. She has been living on land for three years and is head over heals in love with Brody. Lily wants to spend her life with Brody and on the night that she plans to tell him her secret. Things don't go to plan. Quince, her neighbour and the boy who has been teasing her for three years kisses her and everything Lily hope for is hanging by the thread and her happily ever after is threatened because when Mermaids kiss they bond and if her father, the King of Thalassinia doesn't approve a separation Lily will be bonded with Quince for the rest of their lifes.

Omg!!! I seriously just adored this little gem. It was everything I hope it would. I heard so many people rave about this series and when that happens I usually end up not liking the book. However, I didn't like this, I feel completely in love with it. The characters, the setting, the story line, just everything was fantastic.

Lily is one of those characters who are amazing from page one. In a way I think we can all relate to her because here she is totally crushing on a boy who has no idea how she feels. Come on, haven't we all been there? The boy in question is Brody. Popular and good looking but I personally didn't like him. He wasn't worthy of Lily's affection. However, there Quince. Who is totally swoon worthy and make me weak. Because its as clear as day how he feels about Lily. The chemistry between is what makes they story. Lily who is so shy around Brody seems to come alive around Quince. He irritates her to end and the banter between them is so funny.

The plot is very simple and you know exactly what is going to happen start away but it doesn't stop you being totally enchanted by the story. Tera Lynn Childs has create something so magical with Forgive My Fins. Her description of Thalassinia really makes you feel like you are there, swimming through the kingdom and among these mythological aquatic creature.

I highly recommend you go read this if you like Mermaids. And if you are wanting a cute, fun and quick read. I devoured this within a few hours. Starting around 1am and I stayed up until 5am because I simply couldn't put this wonderful book down.

  6. Shoot. I've had these books in my shelves for a while as well but have yet to read them. Rest assured, I'm bumping them up. I have a love/dislike relationship with merfolks books so I've been hesitant. Thanks to your review, I might just dust them off and read them :)

  10. I may fantasize about falling in love with a vampire or werewolf, but I dream about being a mermaid. A mermaid princess would be even better, and Lily Sanderson gets to be both.
